Council Should Decide On
Material Used, Butler Says
The entire council should decide
what material to be used in street
oaving and not the department, Com
missioner Butler told city commis
sioners. The question was raised by
Commissioner Jardine, who asked
what material he should order for a
street paving job. After consider
able debate, Butler was directed to
bring in a resolution as to what he
considered a proper method of pro
cedure. Man in Navy Asks His
Taxes Be Set Aside
Joseph F. Kramolisch, 4126 J, in
active service in the navy since April
10, asks the city council of Omaha to
help make provision to pay his taxes
without selling his property here. The
grounds of his petition set forth in a
letter to the city commissioners are
that his wife is ill and has to undergo
an operation, and he is unable to pay
his taxes. He has, he says, been in
the navv four vears orior to his re
cent resumption of services.
Council Orders Unclaimed
Street Warrants Canceled
The council directed the city comp
troller to cancel all warrants for
which no claim had been filed for
opening and widening of atreets prior
to Vs)i, and directed that the special
warrants revert back to the original
funds and the general fund Warrants
to the general sinking fund.
A. R. Hansen Buys Big
Ranch Near Chadron
Alfred R. Hansen of the Lincoln
Inn has purchased a ranch of 1.840
acres in the Pine Ridge park, Dawes
county, from the Kloke Investment
company. This ranch is located just
ten miles south of Chadron and abmit
fifteen miles from the ranch Mr. Ca
vers purchased a short time ago.
It is Mr. Hansen's idea to erect two
or three sets of improvements on the
property and get several hundred
aires under cultivation. Altogether
there arc about 1,000 acres of the
very best of farm land.
Inasmuch as this is a great potato
country, Mr. Hansen will no doubt
supply his cafeteria with potatoes and
oilier winter vegetables from this
farm. For some time Mr. Hansen has
been figuring on getting hold of a

High Water in Missouri
Causes Guards to Move
The rise of the stage of water in
the Missouri river has driven to higher
land the squad of soldiers guarding
the east approach to the Union Pa
cific bridge. Formerly the men had
their camp on the river bank, near
the east end of the bridge. The rise
in the river has flooded the bottom
and the camp has been moved onto
the grade that years ago was used
as the wagon road to the bridge.
While the boys on guard at the
Union Pacific bridge have not made
any complaint, it is said that they are
in need of a table on which they can
put books and writing material and
several chairs for their tents.

Gould Dietz, Back from Wash
ington, Says East Takes
Notice of the Gate
That ilic present Red Cross mem
bership campaign has put Omaha on
the map is the opinion of Gould Diet,
who relumed yesterday from the
national Red Cross convention in
Washington, 1). C Thirty-seven
cities were represented and aome of
the biggest men and women in the
country were there.
We all got plenty of ginger and
enthusiasm for the Red Cross week,
June 18 to 25, when all the chanters
in the United States will work as
never before fur the drive tor $100,

Prominent Men Speak,
General Pershing, Elliot Wads

English delegation; Frederick Wol

So impressive were some of the
speeches that one man broke down
and was forced to leave the room.
"We will give until it hurls us in
stead of waiting until half of our boys

France the quicker the war will end,"
is the opinion of eastern workers.

So great has the work at the local
headquarters grown that it will be
necessary to employ a paid director.
It is also possible that Nebraska will

to Chicago or Denver.
The ambulance company will toon
be organized, as more than twice
enough men have applied.
Mr. Dietz will appoint a special am
